The Thrill of an Amazon Box

There are few things quite as thrilling as getting a package from Amazon.  Amazon usually means media for me, and I love media.  Especially books.

Today’s box brought On Pointe, the readergirlz pick this month, and the 2007 Children’s Writer’s and Illustrator’s Market.  I’m enjoying both.  I’m especially excited about the articles in CW&IM.  There’s some synchronicity in my life, as the only book at the airport that looked interesting was Death Dance, leading me to read two books about dancers at once.  I don’t have dance class tonight because it’s spring break for most of the younger students, but I figure reading about dance should make up for it.

I wish I could figure out what my favorite Amazon box ever contained.  Do you have a favorite package you’ve ever received?  Especially a book you or someone else ordered for you, perhaps?

  1. I must agree, amazon boxes are wonderful. absolutely magnificent. My favorite amazon box contained 3 books by sharon shinn, a harry potter novel, two jude devereax novels, and an agatha christie. it was delightful. I’m Alexia, duh, a friend of Little Willow’s, and a teen from Los Angeles. Who after much pressure from LW decided to get a blog, that is very boring and has no comments. ah well. I love to read, and especially enjoy the readergirlz picks. How did you like On Pointe? I haven’t gotten a chance to get to the bookstore and pick it up yet, as I’m stranded on top of a mountain with no car albeit a recently acquired drivers liscence. Much help that does me. I apologize for the ramble, but I have been deprived of a computer for most of the day and now I’m getting my frustration out. :). How was Death Dance?

  2. I love Amazon boxes, too. I think the best one was at a time when I was in a funk, and my 3 best friends from college sent me a $100 Amazon gift certificate. I used it to buy first books from a bunch of mystery series that I hadn’t read before, and from that box, found some of my favorite authors.
